What ratings do you need to have to do the race jump? D license? Demo jumper?

its plenty big enough


Thats a recipe for disaster. Allowing jumpers with a little as 50 jumps on a demo load into a football field sized area with 100 jumpers ?

Sure its plenty big enough. This is assinine.

I would SO want to be on that one. And it's all the way over on the other side of the country... Unsure

You bastards! Unimpressed

Seriously, have a great demo and don't fuck it up! Smile

Don't all the jumpers have to have their PRO rating?

Ummm.... forgot to type something? Wink Oh never mind. I had to re-read the whole thread to see what I missed...

The requirements for A license and 50 jumps for a demo? Crazy

Ain't no way in hell I would participate if there were jumpers with those minimum qualifications. This is not a regular DZ jump. Crazy

The number of jumpers with low experience would probably be few. And you can stage the opening altitudes at various heights, so that not everyone is trying to land at the same time.

No big deal.

I don't mean to dought you but it is hard to believe that they are going to let non Pro-Rated jumpers jump into a Nascar race. Am I understanding you correctly?

When I was talking with the company putting on the Nascar races at the Talladega superspeedway just down the road a few years ago, which has a grassy stretch in the tri-oval that's bigger than a football field, they told me it requires a PRO rating. Probably for the simple fact that its a MAJOR event with THOUSANDS of spectators and few outs, if any.

I dunno about the road track in California. It's set into a hill-side so I wouldn't want to be hosed on a bad spot.

ughhh. What I mean is where would the c-130 be for the 9 days if enough interest is given after.

Are you the one organizing this?? I hate to say it but you dont' seem put together very well, and you certainly are not making things clear.

Thus the reason for many peoples doubt.

Where will c-130 be after the race to jump?
Where is the actual landing taking place for the race??? at the track, or by the track?

Putting 100 jumpers of varying ability into an area the size of a football field is asking for problems.
Staggering the opening works well when you know your team.
You obviously have a little looser standards than I do Mr Rich. Go do the jump then report back.
